The Usual Suspects
Monday, December 14, 2009
My amazing roommate K8 and her equally amazing boyfriend B got engaged on Saturday morning. The two were headed to Jacksonville, FL to leave for a cruise on Saturday. B was intent on taking Kate by surprise. So...we all went out to a nice dinner on Friday to celebrate the end of the semester. B was driving into town from NC, and I left him a key under the mat so he could drop off the pieces of his plan. That night, we all packed so we stayed up pretty late. Well, B never went to bed. As soon as K8 was fast asleep, B covered the room in rose petals. He put a huge foam sign on her mirror that said "Marry me K8." (You all this sign was my favorite part: it was covered in glitter, ribbons, and stenciled. It also had a huge red glitter foam heart on it. B made it himself!)
Then, B spent one hour slipping the ring on her finger without waking her up. Her alarm went off at 5:30 am, and she looked through sleepy eyes up to see a glittery something. She turned on the light, and she saw her sign. Brandon got down on one knee, and that is when K8 saw the ring on her finger. And of course, the answer was YES!! I just love this engagement story. Congrats K8 and B. I hope you are living it up on your cruise!
